Was Iraq Worth It?

I am extremely grateful to my nation's troops - so much so, that I want to keep them from having to bear the brunt of terrible foreign policy decisions. Decisions which all too often are made by folks who, unlike you, have never seen war from its business end. If we listened to vets like R Paul - instead of draft dodgers like D Cheney - the world would be a much better place today.
Ten years ago today, U.S. air, sea and land forces attacked Iraq. And the great goals of Operation Iraqi Freedom?

Destroy the chemical and biological weapons Saddam Hussein had amassed to use on us or transfer to al-Qaida for use against the U.S. homeland.

Exact retribution for Saddam's complicity in 9/11 after we learned his agents had met secretly in Prague with Mohamed Atta.

Create a flourishing democracy in Baghdad that would serve as a catalyst for a miraculous transformation of the Middle East from a land of despots into a region of democracies that looked West.

Not all agreed on...
